Culinary & Wine Institute hosts dining series

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 - 1:00am

The Mercyhurst North East Culinary and Wine Institute invites the public to attend its Fall Dining Series, which offers a half-dozen meals designed, prepared and served by students in Mercyhurst North East’s culinary arts program.

The series opens Thursday, Oct. 6, with “From Farm to Table.” The menu, planned by Eric Gomolchak, includes carbonated grapes on the vine with house-made crackers and a cheese assortment; a light and earthy root vegetable salad; herb-crusted airline chicken breast with roasted vegetables and potatoes: and tart cherry mint sorbet over fresh fruit.

Themes for the other dinners include “Tribute to Renowned Chefs” on Oct. 20; “Taste of Fall” on Oct. 27; “A Night in Italy” on Nov. 10; “Travels Through Eastern Europe” on Nov. 17; and “A Break from the Winter” on Dec. 8. The full menus can be found online at

The first five meals will be served at Lake View Country Club on Route 89 in North East, where a full cash bar will be available. The Dec. 8 dinner will be served in the dining rooms on the North East campus.

The price for each four-course meal is $30 (including tax). Seating begins at 6 p.m., and the meal will be served at 6:30.

Reservations are required for all meals; call the reservation line at (814) 725-6333. For more information, contact Beth Ann Sheldon at
